  • Soil: any well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average

    The foliage of this decorative evergreen is beautifully variegated yellow and green, and when the temperatures drop, the leaf margins take on a rich pink hue. It forms a spikey rosette that has an architectural silhouette from which tall flowerspikes arise in summer. These are laden with pink buds, which open to blush coloured bells. This is a wonderful plant for illuminating gravel gardens - and it will also look great in a pot on the patio.

I have a Yucca gloriosa 'Variegata' approx. 5 years old & was doing well but it got damaged by a falling tree & stem is now broken - is there anyway of resurrecting it ? it was a present & would love to be able to keep it rather than replacing it

Hello, It really depends on how severe the damage was, but before you put it on the compost heap, I would give it one full growing season as it may send up new suckers.

I have 2 yuccas which have been growing successfully for a number of years in pots. Very recently dark spots have appeared on the leaves. What should I do?

Michaelwaterloo

Hello, If this is only affecting the lower leaves then I would not be concerned as this just indicates that the leaves are dying back and should be removed. This is not unusual as the plant is putting on new growth.
